Reflections on Dialogue on Race 2019 by Menah Pratt-Clarke

January 27, 2019

Dr. Menah Pratt-Clarke shared her thoughts on our Winter Summit in her blog. She made many good points and related one to the Virginia Tech motto: Ut Prosim, That I May Serve:

"Service can challenge racism if it is understood not as helping others — but rather being in a mutually affirming engagement that advances humanity as a whole.  It is not about paternalism; it is about acknowledging different levels of privilege, power, and knowledge; it is about recognizing that everyone can add value and contribute, regardless of their environment, background, identity, and experiences.  The concept of “being of service” should challenge racism by creating the human relationships and connections that challenge stereotypes of generality and create specific individual opportunities for engagement, learning, and conversation."
